One of the missions of our company was and is to show Russia as a hospitable country, to show that people of Russia are glad to welcome guests from other countries and want to share with them their love for the country and their native places. Today, this terrible decision of a few reckless people has destroyed everything that tens of thousands of people working in the Russian travel industry have worked hard for many years.

Yes, we are not about politics, we are about mountains, about a completely different part of Russia. But we feel ashamed of what is happening even though these crazy actions do not depend on us. We, like all reasonable and peaceful people, look with horror at what is happening in Ukraine. We consider the unleashed war a serious crime and very much hope for the fast end of this insane action. We want to express our sympathy to the people of Ukraine and wish them health and safety, and a fast deliverance from the nightmare of aggression.

We hope for a fast end to hostilities. We want to believe that the world community will take adequate measures to stop the aggression and punish the aggressor - not only the life and health of innocent citizens of independent Ukraine, but also the security of the whole world depends on this.

In the current situation, we do not see and have no other choice but to suspend all our programs in Russia for an indefinite period. We hope for a fast restoration of peace and justice, and we are doing everything in our power to bring this day closer.

Thank you for being with us all these years,
